A windy, cooler Tuesday predicted

GREENVILLE — Spring arrived in North Texas Monday, but didn’t stick around long.

The official start of the season isn’t for a couple of weeks yet, and the weather outside today is likely to be a reminder that it is still winter.

And gusting winds will likely increase the danger of grass and wild fires across the region today.

The high Monday at Majors Field Municipal Airport rose to an unseasonably warm 81 degrees Monday.

It will feel a lot cooler today, as the passage of a cold front overnight was expected to mean a high of only about 54 degrees this afternoon. Winds are forecast to blow out of the north northwest at gusts of up to 30 mph.

Hunt County and the surrounding area were designated under “high” fire danger conditions Monday by the Texas Forest Service, due to the moderate drought and high winds.

Elevated fire danger conditions are also anticipated across much of the state again today.

Even though Hunt County is not under a burn ban, there are still restrictions to outdoor burning. The burning of household trash is only permissible during daylight hours and the wind speed cannot be greater then 23 mph.

Natural materials, such as brush and limbs can be burned, but not treated or painted lumber. No prohibited material — including but not limited to rubber, plastics, wire, insulation and furniture — can be burned, and a responsible person must be present during active burning.
